Writing through film - Primary Teacher offering expert tutoring

I am a primary school teacher with 13 years of experience and have availability throughout the week for tutoring.

Classes are based around a short film which children watch as a stimulus. Each week, children will work on one plot point from this film. Using this as a prompt, they will be taught age-appropriate grammar skills and help 'word collect'. They will then go on to produce their own paragraph based on this plot point. over the course of a few sessions , children will have built up enough paragraphs to have created an entire narrative to be proud of!

About Me

Hi! I'm Bex!

I've been teaching in the Primary Classroom for the past 13 years and have been online teaching since 2017. I really enjoy the fast-paced progress of working with individuals and small groups and finding creative ways to teach new concepts.

I like to teach through a variety of creative mediums. Using interesting stimulus (film, music or art) and innovative ways to practice skills (puzzles, challenges or escape rooms) children remain fully engaged throughout the lessons.

If there is anything in particular you would like to request (private lesson, group lessons or alternative subjects) please do get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you!

Bring your best detective skills to Maths Code Breakers! We’ll focus on the area of maths you would like me to work on through a series of games, puzzles and challenges each week. It might be an escape room, a locked box or a treasure hunt. Following the children’s lead, I’ll steer them to develop their skills each week and then apply them to a code breaking challenge! I pride myself on creating a fun, relaxed atmosphere where children feel comfortable to make mistakes and we can work together to find solutions.

preparatory classes for IELTS / TOEFL / CAE / CPE exams
I graduated from the University of Athens where I attended courses in pedagogics, psychology, and linguistics. I worked at a language center between 2009-2016 where I was a director of studies and taught mainly English as a foreign/second language. Since 2005, when I first started teaching English, I have taught children and adults on a variety of language proficiency levels and with a variety of needs (general knowledge/terminology/for specific purposes), both individually and in groups. I constantly seek progress, meaning that I study further through reading books/articles concerning didactics/methodology and learning difficulties (chiefly dyslexia), observing other teachers as well as attending seminars (online or face-to-face). I will help you learn weird English spelling and pronunciation with fun. I assign homework and after I receive it, correct it thoroughly additionally providing a lot of remarks/examples if they are necessary. During my lessons I use : - Skype/Whatsapp/Messenger to connect with you, - Google Docs to keep notes, which you can check at any time and they are yours to keep, - sketch board me to make mind maps to show connections between ideas, etc. - books, PPP, word docs, diagrams, pics, etc. - pronunciation/spelling/grammar games, - authentic materials were taken from websites. I adore my profession and desire each and every one of my students be satisfied with the lesson. That's why I make sure the atmosphere is stress-free and nice. I also want my lessons to be as effective and close to real-life needs as possible. Therefore, I make sure they are well-prepared, although they can be altered at any point, should such an opportunity arise. I like explaining things in a variety of ways as well as make use of dictionaries, diagrams, etc. When it comes to students who want to obtain certificates, I am very demanding. What can I teach? - I would love to help you improve/develop all language skills (speaking/writing-listening/reading + grammar/vocabulary/pronunciation), - I would love to help you prepare for certificates such as IELTS / TOEFL / CAE-ALCE / CPE-ECPE, - I would love to help you with homework and assignments (literature, history) from school and university (but please contact me about that IN ADVANCE).

Learn English For University and High School Exam Preparation, Grammar Enhancement and Public Speaking
These sessions are focused on English for people who encounter challenges in speaking and communicating and lack correct grammar. We would develop situational vocabulary, corresponding verbs and adverbs that help transmit more precision when speaking. Our mission would be to see where you currently are in the language, strengthen any weak points and create and awareness about points that need extra attention. We also train people who are trying to pass an IELTS, or other tests and exams such as university or high school exams. These classes tend to take place in a more relaxed yet fun and stimulating environment. I constantly provide feedback to students about their progress and assign homework to ameliorate the practical and theoretical aspects of the English.This class is all about making English accessible and easy to learn to all through a variety of social and interactive stimulus. If you book this class and don't feel that it suits you may request your money back after the first class.

English Conversation, Editing, Speaking , Pronunciation, Appointments.
English is my native language. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Communications and my TESOL teaching certification. I'd love to help you improve your confidence in learning a powerful language that is used all over the world! Since moving to Groningen, the Netherlands, I volunteer with a local organization to help people improve their English-speaking skills weekly. I am learning Dutch with comprehension at an A2 level and as a student like yourself, I understand the difficulties in learning a new language - pronunciation, spelling, sentence construction, or even finding the words I want to speak! I can help you by having conversations on various topics to help you feel comfortable by correcting any errors. If you need help writing any documents, editing words or clarifying the meaning, that is something I would be happy to help you with. How can I help make your life easier with learning English?

I hold a BA, MA and a JD, all from American universities. I tailor each lesson based on the needs of the student, because I believe you need to know how to walk before you can run.

I can be flexible about the schedule so let me know if you are interested but cannot make it due to conflicting schedules. I will try my best to match your schedule.

French, Modern Letters, writing help for all levels
Writer-proofreader specializing in fiction literature, I exercise my independent activity for authors, publishers, professionals and individuals. In parallel with this activity, I also work as a professor of Modern Letters in secondary education, as well as in the private and associative sector. This allows me to enrich the mastery of my professional skills through a taste for exchange, a sense of transmission and listening to offer original and stimulating support. The service that I offer, in this context, mobilizes a range of diverse skills related to the field of Modern Letters and writing: I am thus able to provide fully personalized support, ranging from advice to layout in going through correction and writing for drafting work and I can also intervene as a private tutor, as I already do elsewhere.

Français en tant que seconde langue - French as a second language
This class will help you practice French if it is not your native language and would like to get better at it. Whether if it's speaking, listening or writing, everything will be covered. If you're also prepping for a test such a DELF or other French tests, this will be very helpful. If you're in school and picked French as a second language and need help with homework and preparing for exams, I can absolutely help with that. French is also a second language for me but I started learning it at a very young age (5 years old) so I master it pretty well but it's also the language I currently study in in university and my country's official second language.

English Language & Literature for Advanced Learners
Teaching English for 22 years now and working on my post graduate studies in Comparative Literature and Comparative Syntax, I came up to the realization that education is a lifelong process that never stops.That is why it is never too late to learn English, nor is it difficult to perfect your style of writing and improve your grammar. At the same time , a learner must realize that his/her point of view actually matters and that he/ she should have a voice. That voice can only be echoed only through their way of making analysis of literature.In fact, I also realized that learning is not only about career building, but it is mostly about the journey and the fun we share reaching out for our destination.

Santiago
Online virtual conversational English classes for all levels and ages.
Hello, My name is Santiago and I am offering individual and personalized virtual English classes to improve both your oral and written communication. The main focus of my classes is focused on developing fluent and structured communication of the English language either to prepare international exams, including the TOEFL and the FCE, or to be able to communicate properly in the professional field or to reinforce and maintain prior knowledge of this language. I am a graduate, graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University in the USA. Having learned English as a child at the Ivy Thomas Memorial School in Uruguay, and lived a year and a half in Thailand, followed by 4 years in the USA I acquired great knowledge and fluency in the English language. In Thailand I spent a year and a half studying communication arts, which helped me, prepare for my studies in the US. I had several communication classes, learning techniques of how to speak better using not only our words but also our body to help us speak more naturally, calmly, and without getting nervous if we get stuck or forget what we wanted to say. During my career in the US, I was constantly writing essays for my classes, in addition to having to present projects in front of my teachers and classmates. At the same time, I was working at university and after graduation I worked for a year, mainly having long phone conversations with people from all over the country. Nowadays the ability to communicate in English is essential and I am going to prepare you so that you can meet your goals. It could be, studying abroad, going to live in an English-speaking country, improving your communication in the professional field, or keep practicing so as not to lose the previously acquired level. If what you are looking for is to improve your knowledge of the English language, I will help you. My methodology is simple. Each person is different and I adapt the content of my classes to the needs and interests of my students. We all learn in different ways and at different times,
